A question many new moms have is does my baby really need to be swaddled? With the age of social media it is difficult to navigate what is truly beneficial to our babies and what is just a trend being pushed to the forefront of our phones. So let's talk about it, what is the deal with swaddling?
Swaddling has been practiced for thousands of years, possibly originating in Central Asia in 4000 BC, then through trades made its way throughout the world. To help support the origin , art work from Cyprus and Crete, along with votive offerings of swaddled infants during antiquity are documented.
Swaddling has been around for centuries, and there is a reason why it has stood the test of time. Although not every baby is the same and not every baby will love swaddling as much as the next, however when done correctly it can provide a plethora of benefits to your little one.
Some of the benefits of swaddling your baby are:
-Aids in sleep - When babies are swaddled they feel warm, cozy and secure, similar to the feeling they had when they were in the womb. This can help encourage your baby to fall asleep and stay asleep for longer periods of time.
-Helps with the startle reflex -The startle reflex is a natural reflex that newborns have. When they are swaddled, it helps to keep their arms and legs secure which can minimize the startle reflex and help your baby to sleep soundly.
-Prevents face scratching - Newborns have sharp nails that can sometimes scratch their face. Swaddling helps to keep their hands away from their face and prevents them from scratching themselves.
-Keeps baby warm -Swaddling helps to keep your baby warm and can be especially beneficial in the colder months.
